Tackett's RBI keeps Lady Pioneers in first
Warren County Lady Pioneer Neva Tackett drives in the winning run that defeated district rival Rhea County on Thursday.
Rhea County, tying the ballgame at the top of the fifth, stayed knotted 8-8 with the WCHS Lady Pioneer softball team at home until Warren County’s Neva Tackett singled to centerfield with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth to send the Lady Pioneers over the top for the 9-8 win.It was a district barnburner Thursday, as the Lady Pioneers (9-4, 6-0) remained undefeated staying atop the standings with the victory, despite a 5-1 early lead the Lady Golden Eagles held.“I wasn’t worried. Our defense hasn’t been consistent all year. If we can eliminate the big innings, we’re a pretty good team,” said Warren County coach Gooby Martin.
